To Introduce Myself:

It's my second post. Hooray! I thought I would introduce myself. I could go with the usual what I do for a living, where I live, my favorite movies, etc... But how about this:

Things I love (in no real order):
My dog, Dexter
My city, Phoenix
My hometown, Los Angeles
My adopted hometown, Philadelphia
The gas mileage of my car
Reef sandals
My boyfriend
Cheese (Burrata is my favorite)
British TV shows
                                                                                    Colorful doors

So there's that list. Here are some more things about me:

I will never be the girl who can pull off white pants.
My eyeliner will never be in a straight line.
I get stressed easily.
I have grandiose dreams of DIY projects, a beautifully designed house and organization. Those things will never happen.
I watch way too much TV.
Cuddle time with my dog is the best.
My boyfriend and I met on and bonded over our love of beer and baseball.
I'm overly practical, yet I like to think I'm romantic and whimsical and artsy. I'm not.
I will freak out about any sound I hear at night. 
I started an Etsy store and sold two paintings. One to my sister. One to her friend. I haven't updated it since.
I still have my NES and have to use an old TV to make it work properly.

So there is a little about me. I'm 26, have two sisters and dread my alarm going off in the morning.

Here We Go...

I have started two blogs on BlogSpot. One almost stuck. It didn't. I need any outlet. I need discipline. I'm incredibly unorganized and it's getting worse by the day. I thought perhaps if I can post on here for two weeks, every day, that maybe I can start a schedule. I think all it takes is one step at a time. I get overwhelmed very easily, even by simple things, so I'm starting small. I made a simple weekly schedule for myself and I'm trying this. So here we go... Third time's a charm right? Maybe this one will stick.

I think to get me motivated, I will start with weekly or daily themes. We'll see what works and what doesn't. There is a good chance no on will read this or respond, but maybe I can get a few going.

Topic One:

Books. That's simple. I can stick with that.

I'm reading Ender's Game. A coworker lent it to me and I am really enjoying it so far. I used to dislike anything fantasy or sci-fi, but then I read Harry Potter. That completely changed by outlook. I'm not sure why I was so against it, but now it sometimes consumes my life. I love Doctor Who a little too much, Harry Potter way too much and now getting into many other fandoms. So, it will continue and I will go further into the rabbit hole. How about you? Any type of genre you particularly love, or hate? Did you think you would hate something and now you love it?
